Awesome Feedback!





Hi, folks.
As much as I spoke of the anti-climax, following the release of book three in the series, I have been blessed this week with some very rewarding feedback from friends and readers alike.
When a reader makes an instant connection with one of your background characters, and refers to him by name, in this case Sergeant Sheffield, who came to mind during a recent visit to the old station within Leicester Guildhall, ghostly pipe smoke billowing.

Another contacted me asking if I would be interested in looking around Devonshire Place, London Road, which is the fictional address of the Harrison family in book three. I have not been inside the place in 38 years and a look at what it is like today would be a really nice experience.
Such comments and enquiries make me feel very humble at having created something and somebody that readers clearly care about, and can share back with me.
Thanks to those involved - you are awesome!

An update on book three.




Good morning folks.

I know it has been some time since I lasted posted on this blog. A variety or reasons could be stated, but writer's block was the underlying problem.

I am glad to report that this is no longer so, and for the last few weeks I have dusted off and got my head down, once more.

The good news is that my first draft has now been completed, and a novel of about 280 pages is in the process of editing and refining.

Following on from the death of Constable Perkins, in Death Lurks in Cock Muck Hill,  your favourite Borough Boys are off on the trail of what appears to be a straight forward burglary in book three.

Nothing is ever straight forward for Shepherd or Beddows, and the story takes us off to pastures new, as well as the heart of 1850s Leicester.

I love it - but, of course, I would!

Those voices in my head...

The voices inside my head have finally started, once again. I have been struggling with how to adapt the work I have already under...
